Best iPad mini 2 with Retina Display cases, covers and keyboard folios
The iPad mini with Retina Display wowed us with the same 2048 x 1536 pixels of resolution on its 7.9" display as the big brother iPad Air, returning the eye-popping 324ppi pixel density.

Apple didn't skimp on processing power this time, either, equipping it with the top-shelf 64-bit A7 chipset, making the second iPad mini generation one of the most drool-worthy slates out there.

Granted, on account of these stellar specs, it starts from $399, that's why you'd want to put a case or a cover on the precious munchkin from day one. The iPad mini 2 with Retina Display is with the exact same length and width as the iPad mini, so cases for it will fit the original, but is slightly thicker, so if you have a snug case made for the iPad mini, it might not fit the Retina display edition, though the difference in thickness is rather minimal.

That's why we are rounding up some of the best cases, covers and keyboard folios for the iPad mini 2 with Retina Display, now that the small tablet has hit retail, and its availability is poised to ramp up in the weeks and months ahead.

I was searching for a good quality cover for my iPad mini 2 w/retina display and stumbled upon the Poetic Slimline case and have never been more satisfied. It's awesome and although I was willing to pay a little more to protect my investment, it's everything I was looking for and serves its purpose well. I just might look for it in other colors.
